Born and raised in East Texas, Gib was raised in a musical family, which started his passion for music and entertaining. His love for Elvis began back when he was six years old. Gib’s granny, Fay Roach made him his very own Elvis jumpsuit and he would lip sync and entertain family members at his house. Much like Elvis, Gib’s first musical training was in church where he played various instruments as well as led song service. It’s his deep admiration for the King of Rock N Roll that led him to pursue his career as an Elvis Tribute Artist.
Gib presents a respectful tribute to Elvis Presley that is sure to entertain audiences of all ages. Even though he is you in age, he captivates the audience with that same charisma as the King. As a seasoned entertainer Gib has a beautiful voice and works the stage with moves that take you back in time to any era of Elvis’ life be it the humble beginning, all the way to the rise of stardom in the 1970’s.
In March of 2018 Gib competed in his very first competition at the Nashville Elvis Festival, which is a preliminary for Elvis Presley Enterprises Ultimate Elvis Competition, we are proud to say Gib made it all the way to the finals! This is very impressive seeing as it is his very first competition after just over a year in the Elvis Tribute business. Now, Gib is going to be a part of the Tupelo Elvis Festival in June 2018, and in the Images of the King Competition in Memphis, in August 2018.
Gib Maynard as Elvis would make a great addition to any event as a solo act or with his own live ETX TCB Band!
